Frontline War

(Lyrics)

It’s 7pm take your pots and pans 

Bang em as loud as you can 

For all those on the front line. 

 

Be happy where you’re at 

Don’t for get to tip your hat 

Thank your lucky stars you’re doing fine 

 

They’ve shut the schools and most factories down 

And there aint a soul around 

All the news on your phone 

Is telling you to stay the hell at home 

 

Chorus

Mr. Einstein  is dyin’

All the nurses are cryin’

The gates of heaven are backed up 

right to the city morgue 

Welcome to the frontline war 

 

Sylvie works in long-term care 

long hours it don’t seem fair 

but she does it anyway

 

 

 

She can’t believe how they’re gone so fast 

Wonders how long this will last 

Leaves her speechless with so much to say 

 

Now it’s better if she don’t go home 

Only talks to her family on the phone 

She tells them she’ll be fine 

She’s laying her life on the front line 

 

Chorus 

Mr. Einstein  is dyin’

all the nurses are cryin’

The gates of heaven are backed up 

right to the city morgue 

Welcome to the frontline war

 

Chorus 

Tag 

 

It’s 7pm take your pots and pans 

Bang em as loud as you can 

For all those on the front line.
